Studies on Russian Economic Development
http://springerlink.com/content/119902/

Studies on Russian Economic Development (Problemy prognozirovaniya) is a scholarly journal published by a distinguished group of scientists at the Institute of Economic Forecasting of the Russian Academy of Sciences. For many years prior to perestroika, the voluminous reports on economic development of the former Soviet Union produced by the Institute had been restricted from free circulation. Now this vital information is available to the world community. The journal provides the reader with the most up-to-date information on socioeconomic problems in Russia and CIS countries and is of great interest to those in the world of international business relations and Russian and international political studies. The subject matter of the journal is topical, and some issues are dedicated to one particular theme (e.g., conversion, prospects of a market economy). This publication is a valuable resource for scholars, academic libraries, government offices, and corporations.

You’ll find the good, the bad and the ugly: operating successes and failures; entrepreneurial heroes and exploitive villains; empire builders, corporate raiders, asset strippers; seized opportunities and lost advantages.
